    LG Model: DLG1102W - 7.3 cu. ft. Dryer (Gas) LG Model: WT1101CW - 4.3 cu. ft. Washer PURCHASE DATE: 10/17/2014 Although I am crazy mad in love with my 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Dryer (the best dryer I have ever owned), I am still trying to accept my 4.3 cu. ft. Large Capacity Top Load Washer Front Control Panel and the low water level. I always wash just about everything on the Bulky/Bedding cycle because the tub fills up with water all the way. On all the other settings the water level barely covers the clothes (of course I stare into the glass top to watch the washing process) and I keep seeing the same clothes on the top that don't seem to go down into the water. I hope someone can explain this process.Till I feel clothes are being washed at the cycle the washer buttons suggest, I am not comfortable with the water level on Cotton, Heavy Duty, etc. All and all they are both heavy duty, well made appliances and very quiet.

    At a superficial glance, this is a nice-looking machine. And it doesn't do a bad job of getting your clothes dry. However, my biggest complaint is that it does NOT give you full control! You cannot set the dryer sensor level and temperature independently to whatever you want. You must choose from their pre-selected combinations. This is unforgivable. Dryers made 20 years ago let you set these parameters to whatever you want. But this brand new LG dryer which probably costs double what you spent on your last one is not capable of doing what your twenty year old dryer could do. That's an absolute deal-breaker for me. I will not buy LG products in the future unless I can confirm that they give the customer full control.

        We recently purchased this dryer (no steam option) to match the WT5680HWA to have matching capacities. We have owned the washer for 2 months and working well so far.

            My last one kept breaking so it had to be replaced. This LG is great! I like the light inside so I can see if all items are out. The lint trap is easy to clean. The cycles and adjustable settings make it easy to get the right amount of time needed to dry things without over drying. It's very quiet and plays a tune when done! But only if you want it to.

                I like all the options available to you for drying. There is only one thing I do not care for. When the cycle is done, the chimes ring out the tune and the dryer stops. Most other dryers will give you a few minutes of running time between the chime and the stopping of the drum. You have to be right there if you don't want wrinkled garments. My machine is in the basement.

                Easy to use, and so quick and quiet.

                By 

                from Collingswood, NJ, USA

                This dryer is quiet while running, and I love the little tune it plays when the cycle is complete. It took a few cycles to adjust the drying cycle for my clothes, and noticed that it completes a full drying cycle in less time than my old dryer. It can easily handle large towel loads 7+ beach towels. The 27.5in width allowed it to fit through the doors in my older home! The only thing that was frustrating was trying to level the dryer during installation. It was hard to turn the front and back feet in the tight spot that it is located in. It would be nice if the feet auto leveled like my washer. My basement floor is not level, because it is an old home.

                        We purchased this dryer to match our LG washer and because it had a good selection of features. It is much quieter than our old dryer and doesn't leave the clothes wrinkled. I like that it is not bulky and the door opens to the side for easy removal of clothes.

                            Seems gas dryers are going away. I had to wait a week to get our gas dryer. It was a little difficult for us to figure out and the instructions did not answer some question we had. Information seemed to be in several different places. We found answers with instructions and also had to look on line. It would be nice to have a better instruction book. Once we figured out the setting we discovered it dries clothes better than our old dryer and they are softer than before. Just wished it would alarm when drying is done before it started the wrinkle out cycle. We also wished the door could be positioned to open from the top, instead from the side. If it opens from the top, when pulling clothes out they would not fall on the floor and you have a table to sort clothes on.

                                Wonderful dryer, easy to operate. Love the wrinkle setting. We had to buy a propane conversion kit , it would have been nice if it came with directions on how to remove the front of the machine, and how to install the LP orfice. We had to watch a u tube video to install it.

                                        When my old dryer died I went online searching reviews and found LG. I love how quickly my clothes dry, even on low heat. I especially like the wrinkle care option. Just wish the buzzer would sound when wrinkle care starts. Another feature I like is that the time counts down for each load so you know when the clothes will be done.
